ship and $73,000 Purse
Over Sir Barton.
Windsor, Ont., Oct. 12. The thor
oughbred championship of the conti
nent rests tonight on the American
side of the border, .)
Man O War, the greatest 3-year-old
of the year, galloped home with
the equine honors of 1920 at Kcnil
worth Jockey club track this after
noon, a full eight lengths, in front ef
Sir Barton, the great 4-year-old from
Commander J. K. L, Ross's stables.
The time was 2:03, more than a full
second faster than 'the old Canadian
record for the distance. ' .
Samuel D. Riddle of Philadelphia,
owner of the victor, is the richer to
night by the purs of $75,000 and a
gold cup valued at $5,000. "
The race was over a course of a
mile and a quarter at weight for
age, the winner carrying 120 pounds
to the loser's 126. A $2 ticket on the
winner paid $2.10. - -
Between 29,000 and;3,Q00 persons
paid to see the two great horse?
race, the attendance figures and gate
receipts setting a new high mark in
the history of Canadian racing.
The time, 2:03 flat, was more than
a second slower than the record of
both horses Sir Barton has a mark
of 2:01 4-5. which was later tied by
Man O War. The slow time was
i partly due to the fact that the victor
was never in danger from the time
he took the lead at the first 16th
Sir Barton drew the rail and was
hway with a jump, but the lead was
short lived. Jockey Clarence K:im
mcr sent Man O War alongside, and
then ahead. When fhc "stands were
reached, at the end of the first quar
ter, the Riddle horse had a two
lengths lead. Frankie Keotigh. who
had the mount on the Canadian
horse as a result of a last minute
change when Commander Ross with
drew Jockey Earle Sande, rjdq' a
hard race but was unable -to cut
down that distance. JCunimer kept
Man O War in check to the three
quarter pole, then let out a wrap and
the great 3-year-old responded with
a burst of speed' that left Sir Bar
ton eight lengths behind before the
stretch was reached. The last quarter-mile
dowin. the stretch was an
easy gallop, with Kummer visibly
'casing up his mount. ' , s j

Use Aerial Route for Big
Games Against Beatrice. ,
- . '
The High School of Commerce
foot ball team went 'through a harcr
scrimmage with the second squad
yesterday , afternoon at Thirty-second
and Dewey avenue. Coach
Drummond worked his proteges on
forward passes, as the aerial route
will probably be used extensively
against Beatrice High when the two
teams meet on the Gage county
lads' field Friday. 4
The varsity squad was successful
in using parses against the "scrubs"

Beatrice Friday. Leonard Kuhry,
right guard 3nd captain of the re
serves, has been displaying a real
brand of foot ball and probably will
be annexed to the first squad before
the next game.
Barring any injuries to his players,
Coach Drummond expects to have
a stronger team against Beatrice
than he had 'against Central. "
Marcus Krasne, heavy tackle, has
been showing trp well in practice
and is exoected to do the brunt of
fhe heavy line plunges.- . '
I he game with Beatrice is one or
the hardest contests on the book
keepers schedule, and one which
will probably decide the state title,
as Lincoln High has already suf
fered two defeats at. the hands of
state schools. ' - 1

violating the exhibition ticket ordi

' "I'm through with him ibsolulely."
said Mr. Ebbets. "He hasn't been
released, however, and !f anyone
flse wants htm they can have him.
But Marquard will never agakl put
on a Brooklyn uniform." d
Mn Heydler said, however, that'jfce
did not believe that Marquard would
he in the National league next -year.
"Marquavd has hurt Brooklyn and
he has hurt the National league by
his action," said Mr. HeydUr.
"Base baft doesn't want men of hiS
caliber, and I don't think he will be
back in the league next season, al
though I probably won't take any
official action myself."
- It was brought out during the tes
timony that Marquard had b.il 24
tickets for the Cleveland game and
that when approached by a Brooklyn
friend who asked him if he had any
for sale, made a semi-joking remark
ttiat he had, at a price several times
their face value- Marauard'i state
ment was overheard by a detective
who, when he saw tht tickets in the
hands of the pitcher, arreste4 him
on the charge of speculating.
